GRACEPOINT School, a private Christian school for students with dyslexia, was founded in 2012. The school began with just four students and has steadily grown to an enrollment of 130 students in grades one through eight. Students receive a comprehensive, high-quality education program, combining remediation with enrichment and acceleration. Once remediation is complete, students transition into a more traditional educational environment at public and private schools.
GRACEPOINT utilizes the Orton-Gillingham method, a multisensory approach woven into all subject areas. Their students receive seventy-five minutes of explicit reading instruction daily by a certified Orton- Gillingham teacher. The student/teacher ratio for reading is 5:1, while all other core subjects have a student/teacher ratio of 8:1. The mission at GRACEPOINT is to equip dyslexic students with the skills needed to develop into independent and confident learners. They strive to instill a life-long desire for their students to grow in wisdom and knowledge of the Lord, so that each will fulfill God’s purpose and bring Him glory. GRACEPOINT is located in an independent building on the campus of Piedmont Church in Marietta. gracepointschool.org. 678-709-6634.
